Custom Fabrication

Ketek’s fabrication team can make just about anything, from the simplest of truck boxes to multi-million-dollar design and build units that meet any client requirements

Ketek’s fabrication division has a long history of building products for our in-house needs, from hose reels and truck boxes to large, sophisticated incinerators and water management units. But we also work for external clients, and are ready to partner with you on your project, large or small. Our team includes skilled draftsmen, engineers and tradespeople who can combine multiple talents to ensure the job runs smoothly. We have the ability and equipment to tackle projects large and small, simple and sophisticated, and have our own sandblasting and painting facilities to help provide an all-in-one solution.

As part of our ISO 9001 certification, all accompanying quality and technical documentation can be supplied for the manufacturing process.


Ketek Group: Custom fabrication

By: Mark Hoggard
Manager of Support Services

When people think about Ketek, they likely think about a provider of oilfield services, perhaps, or of water-pumping expertise, or of our rental equipment. But Ketek is, in fact, much more than even the sum of those parts (as you can tell from surfing this website).

Areas of expertise include

  • Design and drafting
  • Custom fabrication and welding
  • Electrical instrumentation, wiring and assembly
  • Sandblasting and coating services

Watch as we design and build one of our CY-2000 Cyclonator incinerators

Our Facilities

We have a 7,700-sq-ft, CWB-certified manufacturing shop where we cut, form, fit and weld carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium. From gauge material to heavy duty sections and plate. We have a 5,000-sq-ft sandblasting bay and a 1,200-sq-ft, air-pressurized painting and curing booth. All three facilities fall within Ketek’s ISO 9001 certification, and they give us the coordinated capability to make your fabrication needs a reality.

Our Blasting Grit

Ketek uses Green Diamond Abrasive Grits, which are high-efficiency blasting grits prepared by selective screening of nickel slag. It is an ideal product for the efficient removal of mill scale, rust or existing coatings from steel and other metals in preparation for fabrication or painting. Importantly, using Green Diamond means there is no free silica, a substance that can cause problems for human health and the environment.


Green Diamond is the most cost-effective, best profiling, consistent and environmentally friendly abrasive blast media in the industry.
